55% reward is probably strongest/hardest robot game on BBO.

As for bots score well at clubs, I'm not surprised at all.

I agree with everything you said but you can't change ACBL.

This is like playing in a chess event where everyone must play e4 or d4 on the first move.

The best contract is to double opponents in any part score.

Why? I'm using rule of 43, which says with a 12HCP 4-3-3-3 hand all cards that have 0HCP must add up to 43 or higher for the hand to qualify for a 2/1 opening bid.

This is a rule backed up by artificial intelligence assisted simulation and should be very accurate.

Legal or not, it's both sad and funny.

Imo the hand is strong enough to open if ? is a 7 and just a little bit too weak if ? is a 6.

The director is always right until higher authority says otherwise.

@Stefan it has nothing to do with your post. It is origin from my claim that the thing people do at https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/say-no-to-cheats/ is not an effective way to prevent cheating. I argued that doing this is a waste of time.

Ovunc thought I took it too seriously, and decided it's a good idea to make fun of me by saying “just say no to cheat” on every comment I make at BW.

Do whatever you want, or if you cannot convince partner, whatever your partner want. It doesn't worth the time thinking about this.

I quit this game (and encourage people to do the same) if a claim like this is not allowed.

Prize money, rating system, etc. have been discussed a million times and nothing has changed. Just switch to poker if you don't like the current environment of bridge.

People hate cheating, we want to reduce and stop it, I get it. We can pass laws and regulations to punish cheaters more severely. The organizations like WBF can spend more money hiring/training more or higher quality directors to make the competition fairer. There are many things people can do to achieve the goal.

The point is, we need to do something that actually makes a change, and imo signing a document (unless the goal is to get approval to pass some law) is not one of them.

What exactly is achieved by having many people signing a document like this?

Can someone explain how signing a document like this can be helpful toward achieving the goals it claim?
